Course description

Sewing - Upcycling Workshop


Do you have some clothes in the bottom of your wardrobe that you no longer use? Learn to revamp your old favourite garments and reuse them in a creative way that will help minimise textile landfill waste.

What will we cover?

On this workshop you can learn how to change your garments and how to repair and make alterations. Explore your creativity giving life to unused items.

Who is this course for? Is there anything I need to know before joining?

This is a course for all abilities regardless of your sewing skills.

As our courses are taught in English, please contact us if you have any concerns about your level of English.

What do I need to bring to the first class? Will there be any extra costs?

Bing your clothes, your partner’s old shirts, remains of fabric, suits, or visit a charity shop - the possibilities are endless!

A materials list will be sent out before the day to advise you of recommended patterns and fabric. You will also need a basic sewing kit consisting of:
• Fabric scissors and small scissors, tape measure, thread, pins, tailors’ chalk, a seam ripper.
• Sewing machines are available at Guildford & Woking centres but if you wish to bring your own that is acceptable if it is in good working order.
The Guildford Centre sewing room is accessed via the Harvey Road entrance.

If you have any queries please email the tutor at
